National “Insulting to Women” Day … Thanks But No Thanks


Today is National Administrative Professional’s Day.  There is much that bothers me about this.  This “holiday” started in 1952 as Secretary’s Day, and was designed to recognize the work of secretaries, administrative assistants, receptionists, and other administrative support professionals.

How Not to Help the Poor

Fox News Delivers the Progressive Slapdown


When I was a newly-minted journalist we called Ted Turner’s Cable News Network the Chicken Noodle Network. Today that poultry- based moniker seems poised to make a return.  The NY Times reports this morning:
